I dropped in at Rock Harbor, and was amazed to see how frozen over it all was.
I’ll be the first to admit it.
I start thinking of Christmas lights well before Thanksgiving, and I hate letting them go after New Years has come and gone.
So starting January 1st, when I’m on my sunset walkabouts in the ‘Port campground…
I look for them.
Hoping to catch a glimpse of glowing light around every curve in the road, just one more glimpse of the Christmas magic I can’t seem to let go of.
To douse all the lovely candles, the white lights and wreaths.
All those lovely things that, to me, aren’t just tied to Christmas.
As much a part of winter as the silhouetted pines against a symphony of sunset light…
I know the calendar tells me it’s Spring.
But here on the Cape, it just takes a bit longer for it to arrive.
(Soon THIS occupant, will be looking elsewhere for his perch!)
If you look really close, that is.
I guess I love the quiet, the peace of our winters here on the Cape so much that I find myself soaking up every minute before the “busyness” of summer lands once again on our sandy shores.
Winter, spring, fall, and yes, summer too! 😉
And Happy Spring!
This was my first sighting of a Snowy Owl.
He was just about the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen.
Ahh… A flock of Canada geese, honking their way across the marsh.
Where did you come from, my fine Snowy friend?
My head was full of questions and my heart, with pure JOY.
Just then – he turned and looked at me.
And just like the first time that a Cooper’s hawk looked me straight in the eye…
I knew that I would never be the same.
Happy Winter Solstice everybody! 🙂
